Coach Stephen Keshi has made some changes in his starting line-up for the crucial game against Sudan which is scheduled for 5pm at the Abuja National Stadium.
The Big Boss who is desperate to get results has added three new players- Hope Akpan, Juwon Oshaniwa, and Aaron Samuel in his projected 3-5-3 formation.
The Sudanese pulled a major upset in Khartoum over the weekend; beating the African champions by a lone goal.
The defeat puts Nigeria in a dire situation in which they would need to win all their remaining games in the qualifiers if the dream of making it to the Morocco 2015 Africa Cup of Nations is to be fulfilled.
Eagles starting XI : Vincent Enyeama (captain), Juwon Oshaniwa, Godfrey Oboabona, Kenneth Omeruo, Ogenyi Onazi,John Obi Mikel,Raheem Lawal, Hope Akpan, Ahmed Musa, Aaron Samuel, Emmanuel Emenike.
